La Salle published their 2012-13 men's basketball roster today and as rumored, 6'10", 235 pound Penn transfer Garvin Hunt will be part of the team. Word leaked out a few weeks ago and was finally confirmed today when the roster was posted on GoExplorers.com, the school's official athletic website.
Hunt, a native of the Bahamas, was a highly recruited player out of Sagemont Prep in Florida four years ago, picking Penn over George Mason, South Florida, UMass, Western Kentucky, Duquesne, Fordham, Delaware, and Harvard. He ended up playing sparingly his freshman year and left the team, not wishing to play for previous Penn coach Glen Miller and instead concentrating on academics. Garvin graduated from Penn earlier this month with a degree in Architecture. He plans on pursuing a Master's Degree in Business Administration at La Salle.
It is unclear as to how significant a role Hunt will play for the 2012-13 Explorers, but at worst he should give the team more size and strength on the interior in case Jerrell Wright, Steve Zack, Rohan Brown, or Jermaine Davis run into foul trouble.
